Crafting fun at Stampaholics

As you know I am in Scotland visitings my in-laws & today my mother-in-law and I were booked into a craft class at the fab Stampaholics.

This is one of the cards I made, designed by Siobhan (owner of the shop) I will not be showing you the other as I a managed to make a complete mess of it!!!!

I had to make it with no cutter, just a craft knife and mat................the colour must have drained from my face when I was told that ...LOL. It was pretty easy actually so I have conqured a fear today (I won't be throwing away my cutter tho)

The main image is by Crafty Individuals, the frame is a nestie (which I just had to buy), the sentiment is from an Inkadinkado clear set and the background swirls and snowflakes were created with various wooden stamps that were available for us to play with.
This is not my usual style of card so I really enjoyed doing something a little different, I managed a little bit of shopping at the end of the class but I was being rushed by men to hurry so I had to leave precious stash behind that should now be mine............SOB................still I am going to the NEC next week..........oh I am soooooooooooo excited.
Anyway, my MIL has just purchased the new Magnolia magazine so I am going to curl up on the sofa with it now as I cannot wait until I get hold of mine that Deb from Stampeezee is saving for me.
Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.



  1. bonny card Sarah, and I think you should show us the other one too.
    men just have no patience eh? don't they know that stash shopping takes hours??

  2. Wow I think I would have panicked too without a cutter - I'm not good with knives. I've only been in Stampaholics once on my way to visit my daughter in Crieff. But now I know what time it closes I can sneak in a visit again soon. I always thought by the time we got down from Aberdeenshire on a Saturday afternoon we would be too late - but it opens later than I thought lol! Glad you're enjoying your visit. Debbi will probably tell you about Simply Create at Alford if you ask her!!
